  1. More than 63 unique cards

    I'd like to use Plickers with more than 63 students/respondents at once.

    Example uses:
    - Model the use of Plickers at large PD sessions (approx. 200 respondents)
    - Large university classrooms (100+ respondents)

    Let us know in a comment how many you'd need!

  2. Allow 5 answer choices instead of just 4

    It would involve redesigning the cards, but I'd love to have 5 answer choices available. Many standardized tests (like the SAT) have 5 answer choices, and it would be nice to use Plickers to invigorate our SAT prep.

    I've had a great experience so far using Plickers in my classroom. Thanks for making the app available!

  3. Chose amount of cards.

    When you print them, you should let us choose how many cards you want.

  5. How about an option to make the cards personal to the student.

    If I could include their name on the card, I wouldn't spend time remembering who is which number. Also, if I allowed them to keep cards with them, it would be easier when other teachers find the cards left in their room or hallway.

  7. Mini cards! 6 per page...

    I teach PE and would love to have smaller cards since I need to use so many cards. A mini set of cards would allow me to use them all on a smaller space (instead of kids holding them up!)

  8. Print the answer choices on the *backs* of the cards

    Pros:
    - students can see them while they're answering

    Cons:
    - students might copy answers from each other

  9. Shapes for the little ones!

    I would love it if Kindergarten teachers had an option of using shapes instead of letters on the cards and questions. For example, a circle instead of A so it would be easier for kindergarteners to identify their correct answer.

  10. 100 cards or enough for a whole year group

    We would like to be able to print cards in the pupils planners.

    If we could assign every pupil in a year group with a unique card​ that would solve the issue of having to have a different card for every class.

    Is that technically possible?

    Many thanks

  11. Two sided cards for one student.

    Allowing ABCDEFG(H). This would allow testing of simple music notation.

  15. Cards for Primary Grades

    As a first grade teacher I had to come up with a way for my children to hold the card the right way. Often they were covering part of the bar code with their fingers (the one with 2 per page). So I put stickers on the four corners and call them their finger spots. This way they know where their fingers should be and don't cover any of the bar code for easy scanning. It would be great if these could be printed on the card though so they are more durable.

  16. 5 sides for advanced placement courses

    Advanced Placement courses have 5 choice multiple choice questions. I am convinced that if every AP teacher out there would contribute 1.00 (i.e., the cost of a phone app), we coyld have enough funding (and then some) to make a 5-sided card a reality...

  17. Add colour to expand number of cards

    I think number if possible cards could be expanded using colour. Yes it would require a colour printer, but I would also need around 100 possible votes. Perhaps you can set it up so you can choose between plickers Classic (your current system) and plickers expanded (with a few coulors as a factor)

  18. Change cards to show A/F, B/G, C/H, D/J, as answer choices.

    On some of our practice materials the questions answer choices will be #1. A, B, C, D, #2. F, G, H, J., so the questions will alternate. I think this would require reprinting the cards to reflect those 4 answer choices.

  19. Gridded Responses

    Plickers is great but being limited to multiple choice can be a real setback as a teacher. I have seen different programs and apps that have the ability to scan gridded response and bubble sheets. Seeing these got me to thinking that it would be really great to have a two sided card. On one side would be the current multiple choice plicker card but on the other side there would be a gridded response area. Students could fill in the gridded resonse bubbles with either a dry erase marker or dry erase crayon (if the cards were laminated). To…

  20. Plickers card design editor

    How about some sort of online editor that allows us to choose a picture to go with each orientation of the QR code, I could use it with the younger pupils as an assessment tool if I could attach smiley faces to each side, for example A=FULL SMILE, B=STRAIGHT FACE C=PUZZLED FACE D=SAD FACE, that way I could see at a glance how my pupils have felt the lesson has gone for them.
